The central study question for the Unified Quest 2004 wargame (UQ 04), cosponsored by Joint Forces Command and the United States Army, focused on identifying the concepts and capabilities required to counteract an adversary who, having lost most of his conventional capability, seeks victory through a combination of protracted, unconventional operations and use of WMD. The overarching purpose of UQ 04 was to explore concepts and capabilities that have come together to form joint operational concepts and

Accurate estimates of the software cost are a critical part of effective program management, particularly for large, complex systems. Predicting the cost of software has evolved, but the practice of cost prediction is far from perfect. Military and commercial programs alike are replete with examples of software cost estimates that differ significantly from the actual costs at completion. Software Cost Estimation and Sizing Methods: Issues and Guidelines recommends an approach to improving the utility and accuracy of software cost estimates by exposing uncertainty (in understanding the proje

From the author of the acclaimed Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, this is the first analysis of the crisisin Darfur to consider the events of the last few years within the context of Sudan’s history, andto critically examine the efficacy of the world’s response to the crisis.Illuminating the deeply rooted causes of the current conflict, Mahmood Mamdani explains how British colonialism tribalised Darfur, dividing its population into so-called ‘native’ and ‘settler’tribes, and creating homelands for the former at the expense of the latter. A severe drought triggered a civil war between these

Throughout the history of Arab-Israeli peace negotiations, security has been the most important-and most challenging-issue for Palestinians, Israelis, and their neighbors. This study examines key external security issues that must be met for there to be a successful independent Palestinian state following a peace agreement with Israel. It makes proposals for an international (NATO-led) peace-enabling force, Palestinian security forces, and liaison and confidence-building cooperation between Palestine and Israel. This study also examines Palestinian policing, the nature of security arrangements

Often treated by Americans as an exceptional form of warfare, insurgency is anything but. Spanning the globe, centuries, and societies, insurgency is quite common. Given the threat insurgency presents to U.S. interests and allies around the world, the importance of counterinsurgency is no surprise. However, history has shown that insurgencies are rarely defeated by outside powers. Rather, the best role for outsiders is an indirect one: training, advising, and equipping the local nation, which must win the war politically and militarily. And while counterinsurgency might seem to be a task most

The long-term success of the counterterror campaign will depend on concerted cooperation from European states, but a key question is the extent to which that cooperation should be pursued through European multilateral institutions. NATO has not yet reoriented itself to challenge terrorism, although it has adopted a number of initiatives to improve its counterterror capabilities. The European Union is limited in its military and intelligence capabilities, although it has taken a number of initiatives in Justice and Home Affairs. This study argues that the United States should pursue military
